Ramadan Kareem to all the GPSO Mothers out there, doing their best to ensure their families have the best options during this fasting period.Fasting is very important as it is one of the pillars of Islam and it increases devotion and brings a Muslim closer to God. The essence of fasting is summed up in one word, ‘Taqwa’ which is a recurring theme in the Qur’an and a paramount Islamic value. It is both an attitude and a process. It is the proper attitude of the human toward the divine that denotes love, devotion, and fear. Love to the source of good and beauty that make life worth living; devotion to God’s boundless wisdom and majesty; and fear of misunderstanding the divine intent or failing in maintaining the appropriate posture and relationship.
In line with these highlighted points, it remains a paramount duty for Mothers to ensure that the season of fast is provided with necessary meals for Sahur (Dawn meal) and the Iftar (Breaking meal). Together, let’s examine how best to cater to your families Iftar needs especially in regards to fruits, smoothies, and appetizers.
